Delta Flash Sale: Save up to 25% on Award Flights to Hawaii
Update: Some offers mentioned below are no longer available –Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express
Been planning a trip to Hawaii but haven't pulled the trigger on a flight just yet? Now could be a good time to do so with Delta's latest flash sale. If you book your round-trip flight between now and 11:59pm ET (tonight!), you can get up to 25% off an award redemption.
Fares during the sale start at 35,000 SkyMiles round-trip plus taxes and fees. Delta doesn't have a published award chart, but in the flash sale, it says that the original fare for these routes is 45,000 SkyMiles. Effectively, you're getting 10,000 miles off your award if you're sitting in economy. If you have your eyes set on flying in a more premium cabin, Delta Comfort+, first class and Delta One also apply to this flash sale, with discounted awards starting at 50,000 miles, 60,000 miles and 75,000 miles round-trip, respectively.
Travel must be between January 9 and March 13, 2017, or between April 12 and May 23, 2017 — note the large gap, presumably for spring break travel. This offer is good on flights to four Hawaiian destinations: Lihue (Kauai; LIH), Honolulu (HNL), Kahului (Maui; OGG) and Kona (Big Island; KOA). To book, go to Delta's page for the flash sale.
If you want to take advantage of this flash sale, do it sooner rather than later, as it ends tonight (September 14) at 11:59pm ET. Even if you don't have enough SkyMiles in your account right now, it could be worthwhile to stock your account as the carrier has flash sales like this quite often. To get a jumpstart on building up the amount of SkyMiles in your account, consider applying for the Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express. The card comes with a welcome bonus of 35,000 miles and 5,000 MQMs after you spend $1,000 in the first three months.
